pink floyd

i always thought there was something contrived or phone about the disco music of the 70s. and it seems that in the year 1979, the rest of the music world agreed.

there was plenty of great dance music in 1979 (sparks, michael jackson, blondie, the clash), but the music scene began to turn its back on disco: pink floyd's [right] "the wall," joni mitchell and jaco pastorius performing charles mingus jazz compositions, stevie wonder with a double album extolling the sensitivities and virtues of plants and enlightenment...

all in all, a transitional year, beginning some new directions.
